Well, I don't think Murray has shown his best tennis either. At least Richard hasn't dropped a set this week. Gasquet is a much more attractive shot maker, in my opinion (i'm biased of course). Richard will need to play above himself if he plays Murray, because he has the crowd to contend with as well.

Great that he is through to the 2nd week in two consecutive GS's. Well Done Richard!

Good solid match from Richard!!

Great for him to be in the 4th round without dropping a set!

He now has a 2 day rest and hopefully he will be ready on Monday!!

Murray has been shit so far. Richard has looked more solid and playing more aggressive. Murray is pushing everything so far this tournament.

Murray still has a ginormous mental edge. After Wimby 08 and RG 10...

Yes he does have mental edge.. but Richard is much stronger mentally this year than in those years. He believes more.. he beat a number of good top 10 players lately.. frankly, I would be upset and maybe even surprised if Richard will not come out as a winner in that match, no matter their rankings and their last 2 matches. The match, I feel like is on Richard's racquet.

Big difference also, in those 2 matches, Richard was not strong physically after first couple sets.. at RG it was expected and at Wimbledon it was combination of physical fatigue and mental collapse.

Smart solid match from Richie and yes maybe he should have closed it out a little sooner but not uncommon (even for top players) to have a dip in concentration over a 5 set match when not getting much opposition. He WAS however able to turn it on when he needed the points. He has played 3 matches and not dropped a set - pretty good...

I wasn't crazy about his court position (what's new), could have been much more aggressive - didn't see him hit a volley until the last game or two BUT maybe that was his strategy - just sit WAAY back and let Bolelli self-destruct which he did totally. He did defend very well and his forehand looked good - actually better than backhand today.

Agree with everyone he's been in about 3rd gear until now but the party is over next match - he'll really have to step it up, just hope he can kick it up.

His court positioning is really noticable on the grass because the line that people keep running on is dried out and he's 10 miles behind it. Everyone in the crowd was like how the hell can he hit shots like that from there.

He was toying with Bolelli I wasn't worried for a change, the match was never out of his grasp and he didn't have to work any harder than he did. When he wavered he stepped it up a gear and did what was needed as he clearly wanted to be off court quick because of rain being forecast and he was which was great, also great for me because I spent his entire match stood up and most of it stuck behind people a foot taller than me on tiptoes. I had back cramp by the end of the match. He was very pumped up which I am loving to see from him recently and if he missed something he shouldn't he was frustrated which he should be.

I also checked out his practice session, OMG never seen anyone sweat so much in my life . He seems to me to have really worked on his fitness etc and I think it's paying off. He seems confident of his abilities so lets see what he can do against Andy.

i thought murray looked average today against ljubicic. might have been wishful thinking on my part, but i was not that impressed with murray.

i think gasquet in 4, but i hope for gasquet in three

i think i think too much...

Gasquet and Murray are 1st on CC on Monday. I'm kind of surprised, I would of thought they would of been 3rd. I think Richard would rather be 1st than 3rd, it would be much louder in the evening.

me too not that I'm complaining at all about this but I feel the organisers have done Andy no favours.

Def be a quieter crowd at that time and it's the same time Rich has been playing every day. Andy's played all his matches so far later.

Good luck! Hope you see a great match with a victory by the good guy. I'll be screaming for Richie in my office -bring your ear plugs co-workers.

Lots of good matches tomorrow. I might as well not go to work cuz I'm sure I'll have 3 different matches playing on my computer at the same time - Good thing it is REALLY SLOW at work right now.

I hope you are not alone. It is quite tough to get a crowd going, and even more so to shout out a crowd which is heavily on the side on the home-guy. Good luck!

Have fun and good luck cheering against the crowd, know from 2008 match how fun that can be!

I'd give anything to be there, can't even watch, which means he better win so I can see him Wednesday.

Allez Richard, will try to send loud support vibes to you during the match. I'm sure all his fans here are with him in spirit!
